year-old boy into custody. 30 we'll came in helmets and s.w.a.t. guy. >> reporter: both are held on $500,000 bail. they both have violent rap sheets. according to san bernardino county court records, 30-year- old marvin norwood has been convicted of felony spousal abuse disturbing the peace and dui and drug charges. 29-year-old louis alex sanchez was convicted of spousal abuse and carrying a loaded firearm in public. stow a 42-year-old father of two from santa cruz drew heckles and threats when he wore giants clothes to a dodger game on march 31. after the game two men in dodger gear savagely beat him with a near fatal brain injury. almost two months later an lapd s.w.a.t. team arrested giovanni ramirez. the mayor and police chief announced they were sure they had the right guy.
6:02 pm
>> giovanni ramirez is and was and has been our primary suspect on the stow beating. i'm as sure as you need to be to make an arrest and pursue a prosecution. >> reporter: he seemed to match the police sketch and friends with stow at the game picked him out of a police line-up but ramirez's family members even his little daughter insisted he was innocent. >> i think it's not my dad and i pretty much know it's not. >> reporter: ramirez a documented gang member remains behind bars because police found he had a gun in his apartment a parole violation. as the weeks went by the case was reassigned to other detectives and the case against ramirez unraveled. the new detectives followed a new trail that led to the arrest. >> the process worked that one individual has been exonerated that two others have charges filed against them by the district attorney and one other will be pending. >> reporter: so the police chief wrapped up the news
6:03 pm
conference taking only a couple of questions. he said he doesn't want to release mug shots or give any information about what happened that night. tmz is reporting a few details that we haven't heard before. first of all they are saying that the two suspects were very drunk that night. they were targeting anyone wearing giants gear in the parking lot and eventually came upon bryan stow and his friends. there was a little talking back and forth and that's when the beating happened. a woman was busted for being the accomplice. she drove them away, the getaway driver. she is bailed out and free. 109-year-old boy in the car is not -- the 10-year-old boy in the car is not in any trouble at this time. >> when they arrested giovanni ramirez the police couldn't excite parade him in front of our cameras but this time they have an entirely different tactic going, very cautious. >> reporter: you get the sense there's some humility under way
6:04 pm
here. the fact is, they want to make it clear they don't believe they jeopardized the case by arresting ramirez and remember, they never charged him with this crime. in fact, that's what the chief said in reply to one of the questions is how do you know you have the right guys this time? the d.a. filed formal charges this time. they never did with ramirez. >> all right. in los angeles, joe vazquez, thank you. giovanni ramirez's mother says she knew police had the wrong man all along. >> very upset because they did something wrong. if you don't have any proof, why did you put the picture of him and say he is the suspect? he is the person suspect? no. that's wrong. something that's a big, big mistake that they made. >> at a news conference today, ramirez's family chastized police for jumping to the wrong conclusion. the news out of los angeles
6:05 pm
comes just as bryan stow's family announces signs of progress at san francisco general. according to the family's website, bryan opened and closed his eyes on command, gave what looked like a thumbs- up, and then mouthed, stow, when asked to say his last name. that said the family expects a long road ahead to recovery as well as justice. >> there's a lot of work to be done. we understand what a long road ahead it is for the lapd so we are just waiting for the legal process to take shape. >> bryan stow's condition is still listed as serious. we'll continue to post the latest developments on our website, just two days after they shouted their frustrations at san francisco's police chief, today some people in the bayview community confronted mayor ed lee. tensions are high after saturday's deadly shooting and some are skeptical about the report that the suspect killed himself.
6:06 pm
linda yee on the top cop's attempt to provide answers. linda. >> reporter: well, dana, that anger and frustration being felt by the bayview community is not just about the shooting itself. it's about the conditions that lead to the violence they say they have to live with including what they believe is police brutality. and they say they have had enough. [ screaming ] >> reporter: the forensics tell police 19-year-old kenneth harding shot himself. the medical examiner says the bullet found in his head was not from an officer's weapon. the police chief explains how this could be possible during the gun battle between harding and officers. >> the gun is in your right hand and you turn to fire, again, under your arm, your gun is going to be about midsternum. apparently the officer shot hid the suggestion respect in the leg so imagine if you would an instant hamstring pain pull would cause the push to lurch and the gun entered the right side of the neck and lodged behind the cheek. so i would imagine it was an
6:07 pm
accidental discharge. >> reporter: and it turns out police investigators still haven't found the suspect's gun. the gun that's in the video was not the gun you recovered? >> no. no. the gun -- we believe the gun in the video is a .380 nine- millimeter, a gun capable of firing the rounds found inside the body of mr. harding. >> reporter: this youtube video post claims the man in a gray striped hoodie picked up the gun. >> the person that picked up that gun in the video we believe we know who that is. and we are actively seeking him. >> reporter: but news that the suspect may have accidentally killed himself has not calmed an angry bayview community and some members confronted the mayor during a new library groundbreaking there today. >> you know me. now i'm not giving up on anything. >> i'm not saying. that but it's just not working, man. that' all. we need you to step up for us. >> the mayor was up here at the
6:08 pm
library at the groundbreaking and they say run, ed, run. but ed is running away from all the issues. >> reporter: bayview leaders say the problems are more deeply rooted than a shooting. it's about fixing the blight and bringing in jobs. >> if you get an opportunity for our young people to have an opportunity to make a difference in their lives and then what it does is it makes a difference in other lives. if they can see something they don't have to hang on the streets don't have to do the things that they have to do to survive. they can found out there's a better way of survival. >> reporter: residents say they don't trust the police report that the suspect shot himself and point out that crime is so common here, they dodge bullets regularly. >> come from anywhere. they shoot all the time here. you never know where it comes, now what i mean? >> the frustration you're hearing is many years of not doing what's supposed to be done out here in the neighborhood. >> reporter: and that frustration was obvious at this meeting two nights ago when the police chief was shouted down. chief greg suhr says that doesn't bother him.
6:09 pm
>> the bayview community has been so responsible by and large in this investigation in helping us get to the truth of the matter. >> reporter: does it frustrate you, that reaction? >> not in the least. i'm not easily frustrated. >> reporter: the chief is saying that he still plans to have meetings out there and says nothing will stop him. he will keep working. it looks like they have a lot to do. >> linda yee in san francisco, thank you. the youngest son of schwarzenegger and maria shriver is in the hospital tonight. 13-year-old christopher schwarzenegger has several broken bones and a collapsed lung. jeff nguyen on the surfing accident that landed him in intensive care. >> reporter: tonight former california governor arnold schwarzenegger and former first lady maria shriver are back in the headlines. but this time, they share a united front. today they released a joint statement saying, a few days ago, our son christopher suffered an accident at the beach. while it has been a very scary week, christopher is surrounded

by his family and friends. he is a brave boy and is expected to make a full recovery. >> reporter: in addition, maria shriver said that she also wanted to thank the paramedics and lifeguards as well as doctors and nurses and all of the medical staff that helped to save her son. this comes after internet reports that 13-year-old christopher schwarzenegger suffered broken bones as well as a collapsed lung after being injured in the water in malibu last weekend. the injuries apparently so severe that the teen had to be hospitalized in the intensive care unit for a number of days. today we reached out to paramedics from a private ambulance company as well as l.a. county fire department but no one gave us details about what happened citing privacy laws. today the schwarzenegger children took to twitter. older brother patrick said thank you for your messages about my brother. the kid is the strongest i ever seen. keep praying. sister catherine wrote, thank you, guys, for your concern and prayers for my baby brother. he is a tough little guy and getting better. please keep praying for him. xo. reports say shriver has constantly been at her son's
6:11 pm
side and schwarzenegger was seen entering the hospital as recently as today. the couple thanked everyone for their thoughts and prayers and asked for respect and privacy for christopher and their family. a family that's drawn worldwide attention for the divorce and a child that the former governor fathered with an ex-employee. in malibu, jeff nguyen, cbs 5. the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy will be history in 60 days. today the president joined the joint chiefs of staff and secretary of defense ending the ban on gays serving openly in the military on the same day as formal swearing-in ceremony for defense secretary leon panetta. overturning the policy was one of the president's campaign policies. today homosexuals gathered at san francisco's lgbt center to celebrate the announcement. >> it's very hard to think of the men and women who are not with us to see this and it will

tough cuts to the court system, as soon as tonight. we are expecting the california judicial council to announce some tough cuts to the court system as soon as tonight. the panel met in san francisco today. they are facing a $350 million budget deficit. one of the considerations on the table, scrapping a computer system slated to cost up to $2 billion to be fully installed statewide. >> i can't see that that money
6:16 pm
is going to be available this year or next year or the year after that. if history is any lesson, that would suggest that the technology the system is based on is going to be obsolete before there is ever adequate funding to facilitate the goal of linking all the counties together. >> earlier this week the presiding judge of san francisco's supreme court announced plans to lay off 40% of its staff an close 25 courtrooms. she is hoping to secure additional funding from the state to reduce the severity of the staff cuts. well, a normal day on the job turned into anything but for a postal carrier in the south bay. he sprang into action when he saw a woman and two small children in trouble. len ramirez in santa clara on how this postal carrier prevented a house from being destroyed and saved some lives i guess in the process, huh, len? >> reporter: exact, you never know what happens when a fire gets loose in a townhome complex like this. you know, the houses are very
6:17 pm
close together. it's a tight-knit community. everyone here knows their mail carrier. they know him to be a very friendly person. they may not have known that he is also a very brave and decisive man of action. danny paeste has been delivering mail in the santa clara neighborhood for most of his 27 years in the postal service. but this week fate delivered something to him a dangerous challenge in the middle of his rounds. >> i went over there and kind of saw the smoke coming out of the door and went in to take a peek and saw the fire in the kitchen. >> reporter: a teenaged nanny and two small children had evacuated this townhome after cooking oil caught fire on the stove and spread to kitchen walls. paeste told them to call 911 while he connected two garden hoses and rushed into the smoking residence. >> it was coming around the hallway, kind of like scared, got down as low as i can keep the fire from going over my
6:18 pm
head so i just kept hitting the fire and it finally kind of went out and then flared up a couple of times and it was coming up to the ceiling and finally i did knock it down. >> reporter: minutes later an engine crew arrived but the fire was already under control. >> thank you so much. >> reporter: today the couple hose's home was ablaze -- whose home was ablaze personally thanked him for going above and beyond. >> he had done a very brave thing by getting into the house, switching off the power, taking the water hose from the neighbor and then putting the fire out. so i'm really thankful to him. >> this is being a townhome community, if he wouldn't have done it by the time the firefighters came, they may have been a little late and other houses would have been damaged too. >> reporter: it all happened weeks before danny paeste is due to retire. >> been doing my route for 24 years. and, you know, these people i have known they ever since they moved in and so, you know, i think it was the right thing to do. >> reporter: and as if that wasn't enough for one day, what
6:19 pm
did he do after putting out the fire? you guessed it. >> after the fire i just delivered my mail and went like nothing happened. >> reporter: like nothing happened. well, it was a very big deal around here. , you know, the time that it took the fire en join arrive here seems like an eternity when you're right there in front of a fire and that's one of the reasons why the mail carrier says he got into action. checked with the santa clara fire department. they said that their response time from the first call to the first engine arriving here was 5 minutes, 55 seconds. which is within their normal response time range. >> i'd like to think most of the mail carriers out there would do the same thing because it was right thing to do. >> reporter: that's right. they are often the eyes and ears of a community. while people in this community most of them work, they have two jobs, you know, no one is here at home so obviously, the nanny was out of the control of the situation when that fire started. she got the kids out safely which was a great thing. but he saw that and went in and put out the fire. >> wow. better than neighborhood watch.
6:20 pm
all right, len ramirez, thank you. san francisco's favorite panda honored by the fbi today. the agency presented giants infirst lady pablo sandoval also "kung fu panda" he is called with an award for his support of the national child id program. sandoval has been a big advocate of child identification kits that allow parents to fingerprint and get dna samples from their children. that information can save investigators some very valuable time when trying find missing children. the second largest sailing ship in the world is docked for the weekend in san francisco. it's the naval ship esmerelda from chile. the ship is 371 feet long, it has four masts and 21 sails. it's a training ship carrying a crew of 350 some newly commissioned officers. the esmerelda is open for public tours through tomorrow at pier 27. and she leaves for vancouver on sunday. >> all ashore going ashore before sunday, then! jim bernard, going to be a nice
6:21 pm
weekend on the bay? >> looks like it's going to be pretty nice here for the tall ships and just about anything else. however, traveling across the golden gate that the moment, you can see the fog is back and quite dense out there. a bit of drizzle keeping the highways and byways on the damp side but the pattern is beginning to ship. we'll see a little more sunshine for the weekend. taking a look at the fog pattern right now, you will see it's cling together coast and starting to work its way through the golden gate. of course it will settle in across the bay this evening and retreat a little earlier tomorrow than it has last few days. that will leave us with some more sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures. across the region by a couple of degrees, nothing dramatic now, but we should see a warmup into the mid- to upper 80s out across the interior. we'll look for mid- to upper 70s, maybe a few low 80s in the east bay hills. and back on the peninsula, we'll be in the mid-60s range with low 60s even right at the coast. so looks like more better weather headed our way just in time for the weekend. >> all right. thank you so much, jim.
